We recently learned that Toni Braxton was considering taking an offer to do Playboy but had drawbacks due to her two sons Denim and Diesel.
“I was really flattered, and they’ve asked me a few times in the past. But one of the reasons I’m excited is because after I was sick I just didn’t feel sexy, I thought I lost my mojo, ” Braxton told Wendy Williams on “The Wendy Williams Show” today. “When they asked me I was like, ‘They think I’m sexy? My boobies hang down to here a little bit.’ I was really flattered.”
So is she going to do it?
“You know, I haven’t decided. I have until June,” she said. “One of the reasons I’m hesitant is because of my boys. I don’t want them to go to school and have their friends to come to school and say, “I saw your mommy’s boobies.”

The film will be directed by Bill Condon, the director behind the award-winning blockbuster, Dreamgirls. Canadian singer and former girlfriend of highly popular rapper Drake, Keshia ChantÃ© (pictured below) is set to play the late singer.
The film is also reported to carry an impressive $80 million production budget and is set for a national release date for some time next year. At this time, it is unknown if Aaliyahâ€™s boyfriend at the time of her death, co-founder of Rocafella Records and owner of multimedia compound and art gallery DD172, Damon Dash will partake in the film. Dash and Aaliyah had plans to wed at the time of her death.
Good reveals that it’s one of her dreams and would be a great honor if she were given the opportunity. She also tells us she spoke to the family about it and they are up for it but the issue of her death is still very sensitive for their family at this time.

For the past month or so, we have been exclusively covering the unfortunate beef between RL and particular members from the group Jagged Edge. It publicly began between RL and one of the twins of JE over him not wanting to take a group picture with RL for some reason which led many to believe the feuding began prior to the initial public blowout.
RL briefly spoke on the incident via live interview that night, and by the next morning went viral in the matter of hours reaching over 100,000 viewers by day one. This did not sit well with the members of JE and weeks later at Q of the R&B group 112’s birthday party Kyle of JE expressed himself publicly in front of the masses lashing out on RL who also happened to be in the atmosphere as well.
So, now that all the drama has calmed, Kyle has had a minute to reflect on his public outburst and has realized that his actions were of not his nature and wanted ti issue out a public apology to RL and disrespecting Q at his birthday party. He has realized that there is a time and place for everything and sometimes things need to be handled privately and in a more mature manner.
Kyle hit up your boy FreddyO and offered to give me the exclusive interview to his humble apology to let the world know that at the end of the day there is really nothing but love between the R&B group members of Jagged Edge, Next, and 112.
